Alpaca Beach Party

August 6 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Come out to Little Creek Alpacas Saturday, August 6th from 3pm-7pm and/or Sunday, August 7th from 12pm-4pm for our August 2022 Alpaca Beach Party!

40+ alpacas roaming in a free range setting with a 2 acre pond and small white sand beach. Trails End Concessions will be joining us with their awesome smoothies, coffee drinks, funnel cakes, veggie burgers, appetizers, and various meat sandwiches made with local meat from C&N Farms! King Neptune will be providing live music for all of you who want to boogie down and really have a good time. Hickry Ridge Homestead is coming and will be doing spinning demonstrations, so you can see how our alpaca fiber is spun into yarn! Z’s Woodworking will have their handmade puzzles & more. Courtois’ Creations will be bringing a selection of their items, they are a comfy everyday fashion boutique with affordable accessories, gifts, and clothing in sizes small-3X! Stay tuned to see if Quesal Puppet Troupe and Lake Hill Winery will be joining us!

Cups of grain to hand feed the alpacas with will be available for $4/cup (cash only). We’ll also have tables set up with our alpaca products for sale. Fishing is allowed, bring your own pole (we don’t have any available). The beach has toys for kids to play with, this is a family friendly environment.

No pets, no smoking, and no chasing the alpacas. Please be kind and respectful to others. An outhouse is available on the other side of the farm, unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible. Hand wipes and disinfectant wipes are available, there is no hand sink. There is soap and a cold water hose available near the grain bin and girls’ barn area.

**Please note, this is not a petting zoo. Alpacas are similar to a timid cat, they like to get to know you on their own terms. If you insist on trying to pet them before you’ve earned their trust, they will walk or run away from you – the more you insist, the more they will retreat. Be patient, and let them come up to you on their own for the best experience. Hand feeding grain always helps with the introduction, and will entice them to come up to you.

Free admission for all of our 2022 Alpaca Beach Parties! Donations are always appreciated, but never expected.
“Granma said, when you come on something good, first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way the good spreads out where no telling it will go. Which is right.”
– Forrest Carter from the Education of Little Tree
Sunny Beach is dedicated to my best friend, Sunny, who spent her life celebrating kindness and advocating for children, social justice, and world peace. Her last letter to me arrived the day she passed away, and inside it was the quote above from Forrest Carter. The Alpaca Beach Parties came about all because of my beautiful friend, it’s my way of honoring her and my attempt to bring as much joy to the world as she did.

Little Creek Alpacas is within 20-40 minutes of 3 different campgrounds! A great way to take an affordable mini vacation that the kids will love! Spring Lake in Macomb, IL also has cabins for rent if you’re not a tent camper and don’t have an RV. Spring Lake is approx. 35-40 minutes from our farm. Argyle Lake State Park is approx. 20-30 minutes from our farm. Weinberg-King State Fish and Wildlife Area is approx. 20-30 minutes from our farm.
